Camp Goddard may have been the best experience of my life. In the 8th grade I got a shirt stating I'd canoed the Illinois. Perhaps a few miles, loved the experience nonetheless. The Arizona National Scenic Trail was made possible by the great members of HAZ. Albeit semi conscious, Isis Temple is hands down the most gratifying memory.

Dad didn't grasp HAZ but enjoyed witty banter. Whenever HAZ surfaced in conversation dad would ask "joe, why hike arizona?". To which I'd respond with an ear to ear grin, because dad... it ROCKS!
